New financial instrument to support projects contributing to the environmental sustainability and efficiency of the transport sector in Europe

03 April 2019

The European Commission (EC) together with the European Investment Bank (EIB) launched the new CEF Transport Blending Facility as a pilot for the next financial period.

With an initial budget of EUR 200 million from the EU budget, the Facility will finance investments in the European Railway Traffic Management System (ERTMS) and in Alternative Fuels infrastructure, leveraging funds from the EIB, National Promotional Banks and private sector.

This is in line with the key policy objectives of decarbonisation and digitalisation of EU transport, as well as smart, sustainable, inclusive, safe and secure mobility. Moreover, to foster deployment of mature projects, the EC sets for the first time a 'Facility' which will allow applications to financial support on a rolling basis until March 2021.
